Do you think 8 covers are enough for a newborn?
 
I have 8xs/newborn covers, and 4 aios, I'm hoping that enough? What do you mamas think? I'm not opposed to just using prefolds without covers if I need to, and I have a stash of about 8 small covers too.

I should be fine right?

Yes more than enough. How many prefolds do you have?

I have 10 and that was way more than enough.

I have 5 right now, 4 thirsties xs and 1 rearz nb. I also have 2 Imagine NB covers but I don't like the fit of the leg gussets, so we aren't using them. We are using smart fit pfs and gmd fitteds w/snaps. We are doing fairly well only having 5 covers. We also do laundry every day because we really like using the fitteds (only have 12 so not quite enough to use them full time). DD rarely leaks ebf poop onto a cover with a fitted but with a snappi and a pf, she probably gets some on a cover 1/3 of the time. That may have a bit to do with my abysmal prefold/snappi skills. We have only had one time so far where we had to scramble for a cover. In that case, I used a Flip cover with the back folded down. See how to do that here: http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/....php?t=1052745 If you are using pfs, I'd say 8 covers is enough. It's also not hard to handwash a cover if need be.

Ya, you're good:) I was washing every other day with my newborn and only went through 2-3 covers in that period (with prefolds and fitteds)

Yes, you'll be good.......I had 5 or 6 with a wool soaker and we were fine (assuming you are fastening the prefolds and not just trifolding, for trifolding I'd probably get a couple more).

The inportant question is how many prefolds do you have? I had 12 prefolds, and 4 covers and that was plenty of covers, NOT enough prefolds!

8 covers is good, do not go with less though.
